We report a synchronously pumped, cw mode-locked, near-IR dye laser based on the Kodak Q-switch dye No. 5. Benzyl alcohol is used as the solvent to form a flowing dye jet. Synchronously pumped by 2-psec, 950-mW, compressed pulses of a Nd:YAG laser, the dye laser can be tuned from 1210 to 1340 nm with a maximum output of 5 mW and a pulse duration of 600 fsec.
